gimme some power

some folks don't know that i enjoy working with my hands.

POWER TOOLS, people!  and not just battery operated ones, ha!

it's not a lot of fun renovating on my own, though, so my parents often come to help me in my house because they're retired, and they both love fixing things up as well.

recently i've been working on a boudoir. it's going to be a place where i can do my hair and make-up, where my shoes and scarves and nailpolish all have a place to hang out. i want lots of fun art and, of course, a shelf full of my favorite books right next to a comfy reading chair.

so after tearing off all the trim, the electrical, the doors and plastering all the damaged spots (my house is old!), we painted, installed all new trim, new doors, new electrical, new lighting, crown moulding, blinds and a curtain rod. yes, i know how to use the air compressor and nail gun.

the room is almost done. all that's left is to organize the closet and bring in the furniture.

did i happen to say i bought an antique vanity dresser with a swivel mirror? no?  so i probably didn't mention, either, that i stripped the ugly brown paint off it and painted it bright magenta with black hardware and branches and birds.

it's magnificent. i'll post photos soon!

holy hotness

those who know me even a little are aware i'm an avid pinterester (totally just made up that word) but i have a lot of personal friends and family who follow me on there and i don't like to melt their eyeballs with cocks and pussy. but i always felt a little restricted, like something was missing from my online life. so i finally caved this week and joined tumblr. honestly, there is some dirty, dirty stuff out there. 

i LOVE it!

i've taken down the silly little man page i had going on, because seriously people, tumblr is where it's at. if you don't like pure eroticism, if you don't like man-man-girl, and if you don't like lots of nudity, do not go there. go to my pinterest pages, you belong in one of my books or these are my characters, instead!

if you *do* happen to like all those things, you're going to be tickled! and turned on. ha!

so, tumblr on in to sexiness ;)

i can't even...

what the..? 

there's no proof, but i firmly believe that, sometime in the middle of 2012, i fell into a time-eating wormhole and i've only recently emerged from it, only to find that i somehow lost months and months and months.


at any rate, my feet are now firmly planted back on Earth and i'll be making infrequent posts here again.

for a quick update, the story previously known as Lawnmowers and now tentatively titled Opposing Currents is slated for release in early 2014. i am stoked about this story, people! Sam and Markus and Faye have pretty much ripped my heart out, but man was it worth it.

stay tuned...i may or may not have teasers every so often!

Blue Bottle Beach
by Amie Denman

There’s no better place for a bachelorette party than Key West, Florida. Jackie and her accountant friends call in sick and escape wintry Chicago to celebrate in the sunshine, but an unexpected twist breaks up the party. On her own for a weekend in America’s least inhibited city, Jackie meets a man who makes her heart do a tropical dance. Mitchell is handsome, charming, and knows just where to touch her. If he looks a little familiar, the thought is quickly lost on the hot sands.

Mitchell finds Jackie equally irresistible as he romances her on Blue Bottle Beach, but he has no idea she should be in her cubicle in Chicago balancing the sheets for one of his many companies. What will happen when Mitchell and Jackie eventually look past their attraction to discover he’s her boss? Will a hot weekend in Key West still sizzle in wintry Chicago at the corporate Christmas party?

Fiction Friday - The Heartbreaker by Maddie James

 The Heartbreaker
by Maddie James

An Amazon Bestseller - Contemporary Romance

Lucki Stevenson spends most of her time coaching unruly teenagers instead of giving her heart a much-needed pep talk. And when all-grown-up, boy-next-door, Dr. Sam Kirk moves back to town, Lucki wants to forfeit the game of love completely. Sam broke her heart once before, and she won't give him a chance to do it again... 

Returning home to care for his younger brother J.J., Sam is happy to accept Lucki’s expert advice about kids--and even happier that the tomboy he remembers is now a beautiful woman. When Lucki agrees to help him with J.J., Sam is sure he's on the road to success as an instant parent, and possibly as a husband--but first he’s got to convince Lucki that he's not the heartbreaker he once was, and that good guys do finish first...

This is a sweet southern romance with a lot of humor. The small town setting lends a rich atmosphere to the story, and I found the characters very likable and believable.” ~Amazon Review
"This is the second book of Maddie James that I've read for a review but it won't be my last. I love the way she writes and will look for more of her books in the future. I recommend this book - maybe you too can uncover another favorite author." ~Romancing the Book Reviews
